CB500 seat replacement
« on: June 11, 2012, 11:47:17 pm »
Has anyone bought a complete seat from Morretti - if so can you post a photo? I've spoken to Bob there and he's so busy he can't find time to send me one. I want to see how well they fit the bike, after having some crap thing on mine which had an air gap to the tank and didn't even sit tight on the frame.

Or are there any other good alternative seat suppliers in the UK? I think I know where the seat I have came from, but I don't want to blast that around.

Thanks,

Rog

For anyone interested, Bob is now selling via Ebay (and therefore showing photos). They look pretty good and the feedback is excellent, as is the price.

So I've ordered mine . . .

Spoke to Bob the other day, he's been snowed under with a large order (500 seats) - so still waiting for mine, but I reckon it will be worth it.

Is this the guy selling the $500 seats I've seen on there?

Now selling my Moretti seat, as I've imported a decent original from the States. Any offers over £60 considered. The Moretti is good and is obviously almost new, but has a very slight indentation on the chrome trim, where the seat has lodged against the arm of my rear rack - hardly noticeable really.
